Betta beds?

Postby Mitchbarnes7 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 8:44 pm

Hello all,

I've just been looking online with articles relating to Bettas and I have came across the concept of putting a 'Betta Bed' somewhere near the top of the tank for the Betta to rest on? Can anyone please inform me with the pros & cons of Betta Beds? Or different types of Betta Beds etc i.e natural or artificial ones? And where to locate them?

Many thanks,
Mitch

That's the first I have ever heard of them and I now have a mental picture of a tiny 4 poster hooked over the top edge of the tank with a Betta reclining gracefully :lol:

Well that is a new one for me! Can't say I see a need for them myself as the fish can rest where they like, if they like without a plastic leaf.

Hahaha, they do seem a bit unnecessary!

Not at all silly they like to lie on something to sleep.

I purchased a plant on wood which also came with a sucker on it from Dobbies garden centre. I have placed it in the top corner of the tank where there is the water movement is at it's lowest. My betta sleeps on the plant every evening and uses it as a hiding place.
